Arthur Lemarcus "Marcus" Banks III (born November 19, 1981), is an American former professional basketball player.
Banks is 6'2" (1.88 m) tall and 225 lb (93 kg). He played college basketball at the UNLV with the UNLV Runnin' Rebels, where he was Co-Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. He was selected with the thirteenth pick in the first round of the 2003 NBA draft by the Memphis Grizzlies, then traded to the Boston Celtics, along with Kendrick Perkins.
After playing two years at Dixie College, a junior college in St. George, Utah, Banks transferred to UNLV. He played for the UNLV Runnin' Rebels, where he was Co-Defensive Player of the Year of the Mountain West Conference as a senior.
Banks was selected as the thirteenth pick in the first round of the 2003 NBA draft by the Memphis Grizzlies; however, he was then traded to the Boston Celtics along with Kendrick Perkins. He was traded to the Lakers in 2004 for Gary Payton, but returned to Boston after the trade was amended following Payton's refusal to take a physical. In Boston, Banks was known for his good defense and ball handling; Allen Iverson, a division rival point guard, named Banks as the toughest defender he faced in his career. Coach Doc Rivers had high hopes for rookie Delonte West, who also played point guard.
In 2007, the Suns spent training camp working Banks into a shooting-guard role when they were not seeking a trade, a tough proposition with Banks in the second year of a five-year, $21.3 million contract.
On November 20, 2010, Banks was traded to the New Orleans Hornets with Jarrett Jack and David Andersen for Peja Stojaković and Jerryd Bayless. In his 5 1/2 month tenure with the Hornets, Banks never played a game for the team.
